9.2 NORMALISATION OF MARKS for M.E./ M.Tech./ M.Arch./ M.Plan:


The Entrance Test for M.E./M.Tech./M.Arch./M.Plan candidates has Part – I Mathematics and
Part – II Basic Engg. & Sciences both as common parts and Part - III meant for different disciplines.
On evaluation, the mean (m) marks and the standard deviation (s) of marks (raw marks) may vary from
discipline to discipline under Part - III. Normalised marks are obtained using the formula:
Normalised marks = 50 + (10/s) (raw marks – m). This gives the relative ranking of candidates in any
discipline.
9.3 CATEGORIES OF CANDIDATES FOR M.E./ M.Tech./ M.Arch./ M.Plan.
Grouping of candidates who apply for admission to full time M.E./ M.Tech./ M.Arch./ M.Plan.
Degree Programmes in Engineering, Technology, Architecture and Planning.

i GATE-A Category:

Those Candidates who have a valid GATE score in the appropriate discipline

7
ii GATE-B Category :

Those candidates who have valid GATE score in Engineering Science (XE) and Life Science
(XL) papers. Candidates under this category must take the TANCET 2008 for admission to
M.E./M.Tech./M.Arch./M.Plan degree programmes.
iii Non-GATE Category :
(a) GATE ‘A’ Candidates willing to be considered under non-GATE category also must appear
for the TANCET 2008.
(b) Those candidates who have not qualified in GATE ‘A’ Examination have to appear for the
TANCET 2008.
iv Sponsored Category :
A limited number of seats are available for the candidates employed and sponsored by the
Government organizations and Educational Institutions under sponsored category. All such candidates
have to appear for TANCET 2008.

9.4 HANDLING OF THE ANSWER SHEET

The candidate has to choose the correct answer and shade the corresponding small open box in
the answer sheet with either a HB pencil or a ball point pen (blue or black) for that question. Wherever
writing is involved use ball point pen only. If more than one small open box is shaded for any question
then it will be treated as wrong answer.

The shaded information is captured by the scanner and the details are transferred to computer for
evaluation. Even a small stray Pen/Pencil mark on the sheet will be captured by the scanner which may
lead to wrong evaluation, resulting in reduction of marks. When changes are to be made in the answer,
erase the original pencil shading completely and shade the new open box. Shade the open box fully so
that the number printed inside completely disappears. Improper shading and light shading are likely to be
missed by the scanner, which may result in reduction of marks.

Important Note: The Question Book in each subject may have different versions. Each
question book will have a unique serial number. The candidate must write and shade the question
book serial number on the Answer sheet in the appropriate boxes and open box. This is very
important, as the evaluation will be based on what the candidates specify on the answer sheet. Any
mistake committed in this regard may result in the answer sheet being evaluated against a different
set of questions.
